    Replace the harddrive. I love how 3/4 of these computer problems can be solved by common sense.

    buy a hard-drive
    replace it with your old one
    plug the SATA cable into the correct ports
    turn on your PC, configure the BIOS and install an OS on it

    Depending on how old his pc is, he might have to do some research into whether or not he needs an IDE or SATA drive.

    Get Windows OS on Disc... (XP/7)
    Replace HD (IDE/Sata)
    Go in bios and select first boot as CD-Rom & save
    Boot from Disc & Install Windows
    After windows has fully installed go in bios and change first boot back to HD, 2ND Boot to CD-Rom, 3rd Boot Disabled... Save and Thank me later...

    Just look at your motherboard and if you see a sata port buy a sata hard drive. If you see IDE use IDE
    That's what sata ports looks like on your motherboard if you don't have them get IDE. For IDE you need these kind of cables

    Judging buy all these comments you'll end up being incredibly confused and fucking up your computer. Not that some of them aren't right but just post your computer model so we can figure it if it's IDE or SATA.
